Over 60 years ago, Disney released a film that would forever change the way in which little girls view their fairytales. In 1950, Cinderella hit the big screen and reminded us all of the magic of fairytale romance. It also solidified our obsession, as women, with shoes! Who didn’t dream of their prince delivering a glass slipper after that moment in the theatre when you watched as Prince Charming slid Cinderella’s foot into the matching glass slipper? It’s the material dreams are made of and now one shoe designer is getting involved in bringing that dream back to the modern world. Christian Louboutin has embarked on a special project with Disney to celebrate the relaunch of the original Disney Cinderella cartoon which will be rereleased on DVD and Bluray this fall. Louboutin will create his very own special edition glass slipper to mark the occasion.
Christian Louboutin commented on the collaboration:
“Isn’t it everyone’s dream, to once in your life be part of a fairy tale? Walt Disney Studios gave me a wonderful opportunity to live this magical moment. I have been so lucky to have crossed paths with Cinderella, an icon who is so emblematic to the shoe world as well as the dream world.”
No further details of the shoe design have been released but you know we’ll bring you updates as soon as we receive them. Until then…long live the fairy tale… and of course the modern day fairytale feeling we all get when we buy a new pair of Louboutins! Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo…
